Close Air Support Conference

15 November, 2017 - 16 November, 2017, Bristol, United Kingdom

The Close Air Support Conference will be held in Bristol, United Kingdom on the 15th & 16th November 2017. The aim of the Close Air Support Conference is to provide an opportunity for military, government and industry personnel involved with Close Air Support and Close Air Support programmes to share programme updates, future requirements, new technologies and Lessons Identified relating to Close Air Support and contemporary operations.

CAS 2017
will feature presentations from various nations that focus on the preparation, training, equipment and joint fires support provided to the JTAC/JFO/TACP for the dismounted fight.

The event will provide a dedicated forum to assess Close Air Support operations from a FAC/JTAC perspective, addressing all the key issues such as training, improving communications networks and lessoning the burden of equipment for the dismounted FAC/JTAC. It will also assess the wider strategic context of FAC operations, looking at the land battlefield, increased air/land integration and how future capabilities will be implemented. The conference will share operational experiences and future strategies from militaries across Europe, North America and Middle East.


New for 2017:

We will collaborate with the Joint Air Land Organisation at RAF Air Command to deliver a more authoritative event. JALO is a 1 Star Headquarters and is the UK Defence Champion for Air/Land Integration (ALI), and is responsible for assuring the UK's Forward Air Controller capability. Each year JALO hold an internal UK MoD ALI conference. This year that conference will be delivered within the CAS Conference with the objective of widening the discussion to include overseas partners and industry.


Who attends?

The Close Air Support Conference will be attended by requirements and acquisition officials from the Land and Air Systems divisions on national procurement bodies, as well as senior military Officers from nations across the world. Also present will be the senior management of the leading industry contractors providing relevant technologies.
